Meet Our Friends in North Florida

Each book in the I Wish You Ice Cream and Cake series focuses on native animals found within the North Florida region of St. Teresa Beach, Moore Farm, and the Apalachicola National Forest. These locations and animals offer children a familiar story that takes place in their backyards, and for those who don’t live in the area, a chance to share a story in a new place.
